You will have special laws and administrative code that govern your actions and ethical behavior.
Not even a little bit true. At least not for electronics and mechanical designers.

I imagine this might be true for civil engineers that do sign off on bridges. God, I hope so.

kinda sorta...

I do some civil engineering... but not bridges. Well, once I designed some truss frames that were for concrete forms to support a bridge they were pouring.

Wood truss designers actually engineering the trusses & system, just under the supervision of a civil engineer. Then he'll stamp the drawings after a review. Same goes for engineered wood products I design too, beams, joists, etc etc

CPA don't call me accountant. I didn't spend four years in evil medical school to be called accountant. Wait ....

If you are an actual engineer you drive a train and wear a striped hat.

Seriously, I can name maybe 2-3 lifelong engineers I know personally that went through the PE process, including like a gazillion people I know that work at NASA. Are you saying NASA folks aren't engineers?

Not an engineer. Graphic Designer by trade. Brewing beer definitely works with my wanting to create things though.

Yeah, I was being silly, making fun of my lack of a brain. I understand what it will accomplish and I think it's truly amazing. The details though are way over my head.
